I live and work (Roof of Africa Hotel) in Windhoek. I bought this property to have a base in Europe when I visit my family in Berlin where I grow up.
The apartment is right in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg, so great location. Bio grocery stores are an easy walk, as are two great playgrounds. We struggled to rent a bike for an infant and a toddler, but otherwise bike is the way to go. Instead we walked and took trains and it was very easy. This is the most friendly part of the city for children. It's like a huge kindergarten. The apartment is furnished with basic ikea furniture but has all you need and is large. A great big bathtub and a nice kitchen to cook in. It is on the ground floor and faces a little common garden. We used the garden a lot as our children got quickly tired of being in an apartment. The garden has some toys and other kids from the building play there. This is a good choice if you have children, in location, toddler friendly apartment and it being a ground floor helps when lugging groceries and two kids.
Nice, well-equipped apartment. Located at a very nice park (Prenzlauer berg), surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops, and very quiet surroundings. The apartment looks like it is primarily rented out, with empty closets and bookshelves (therefore lacks a bit of atmosphere), but this is the case with a lot of AirBnB apartments in Berlin I think. All in all good place to stay!
We were met by Alva with the keys and she gave us a tour of the apartment.
Nice and cozy flat in perfect location. we did not meet Torsten, but Elva helped us with the Check-In. We really enjoyed our stay. The flat has everything you need.
The apartment was exactly as described. It's spacious and located in a nice "Altbau" building. So, it has the coveted high ceilings in all rooms. It has apparently been remodeled recently and had all new furniture, that was basic (i.e. IKEA) but nice and very functional. The washer/dryer and full kitchen (fridge, freezer, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher) completed the on-site amenities and made us feel right at home.
The location in Prenslauerberg is very attractive. It feels like a young neighborhood with lots of expats. Unfortunately, we had a few days with poor weather and had to take the car to get around. Free street parking is available thanks to Thorsten's residential parking permit, but can be difficult to find later in the evening. On days with nice weather, we took public transportation instead, which is about a ten minute walk away. This way, we didn't have to give up our parking spot.
There were several restaurants, bakeries and small grocery stores within a 3 to 5 minute walk. There is a bigger grocery store (Penny) about 10-15 minutes walking distance away. And of course, public transportation makes lots of other stores easily accessible.
Thorsten was super responsive and helpful when contacted prior to our trip. And the check-in and check-out that he had arranged worked very easily as well. He warned us in his first message that city tax wasn't included in the AirBNB rate and would have to be paid in cash upon check-in. This was a little surprising, but no deal breaker; and thanks to the early warning it was something we were prepared to do.
Ten days in Berlin was way too short. We are sure to be back, and we would love to stay in Thorsten's apartment again.
Die Wohnung liegt super, mitten im Prenzlauer Berg gegenüber von einem kleinen Park. Sie ist toll ausgestattet. Es ist wirklich alles da, was man braucht um sich schöne Tage in Berlin zu machen. Das Bad ist riesig. In der Küche ist alles da, was man braucht. Im Wohnzimmer lädt ein bequemes Sofa und ein großer Fernseher zum faulenzen ein. Abschließende sind die beiden Schlafzimmer geräumig und es ist überall Stauraum in Schränken und Kommoden vorhanden. Die Wohnung ist pikobello sauber und gepflegt.
Die Schlüsselübergabe war problemlos und unkompliziert. roßartig war die Parkkarte, mit der das Auto, ,quasi vor der Tür stehen konnte.
Auch der Kontakt mit Torsten war toll. Er hat auf alle Frage schnell und verbindlich geantwortet.
Alles in allen, war es ein gelungener Aufenthalt, den wir gerne wiederholen. Vielen Dank
Place is as advertised: clean and well kept. Very close to bars, cafes, restaurants. Short walk to public transit.
The apartment was perfect, the rooms are large and well decorated, and the location is perfect, close to loads of restaurants, bars, cafés and shops.
We had a fantastic stay at the appartment! It's perfectly located in a nice area, close to lots of restaurants and public transport. The appartment is spacious and fully equiped. Furthermore, it's quiet. A relaxed place to withdraw after a day of sightseeing. It was our first time in Berlin, but we'll certainly come back.
Wir haben die Zeit in Torstens Appartement sehr genossen, die Wohnung ist sehr geräumig und wunderbar eingerichtet - die zwei Schlafzimmer haben große Betten, das Wohnzimmer ist sehr einladend. Zudem ist die Wohnung ruhig gelegen - wirklich super.
Fantastic location! Out of the front door, there's a beautiful park right in the middle of the city! The apartment is furnished to the detail. Very cozy and comfortable. With the smart TV, an evening stay in ( very rarely in Berlin) could be just as much entertaining with the 3D screen. I can rightly say, this is better than home - as home sometimes isn't so complete with facilities as this apartment! Highly recommended!
